Last year, I discovered a wonderful store called Ten Thousand Villages. It’s actually a national store, so you may have one near you as well.
Ten Thousand Villages features all sorts of homemade housewares, jewelry, textiles, toys and more made by disadvantaged artisans in 38 countries. Their products are not only unique and beautiful, they are also very reasonably priced.
I recently found out that Ten Thousand Villages also has a website where they sell a number of the same products that you can find in brick and mortar stores.
Right now, their website has a whole ton of products on clearance – starting as low as $2! Plus, through June 16, you can get FREE shipping on your entire order, no minimum.
And when you use the code SCA5D10FS at checkout, you will save an additional 10%.
For the best deals, search Clearance by Price: Low to High. I picked up two necklaces for less than $10 total, including free shipping! A little splurge from our “blow money” category of the budget. 🙂
P.S. If you sign up for their newsletter (you’ll get the chance at checkout), you will get email notices of sales and free shipping specials.
